Alkaline Trio release dark new single “Is This Thing Cursed?”

A few weeks after making their long-awaited return with “Blackbird,” Alkaline Trio have dropped another new song today: “Is This Thing Cursed?”

The song — which can be found at the top of the post — will be the title-track off of their upcoming album, which will be released on August 31st via Epitaph Records. You can currently pre-order your copy of Is This Thing Cursed? here.

If you like what you hear from the two songs released so far, here’s some more good news: Alkaline Trio is currently on tour. They began their U.S. tour last Friday, and the East Coast leg wraps up on August 26th in Orlando, Florida. They take some time off before beginning a West Coast run on October 4th in Santa Ana, California, and then wrapping up that leg on August 18th in Santa Cruz, California.
